He was born in Seattle, Washington, on October 28, 1955 AD, the son of William Gates and Mary Maxwell Gates. Gates has an older sister (Kristani) and a younger sister (Libby). Bill Gates was the fourth name of his family (IV), but was known as William Gates III (III), because his father left his surname as III and is of Irish-Scottish (British) descent. Bill Gates was raised in a Protestant family belonging to the Congregational Church.
Baby Bill was raised in a family with a rich history of politics, business and social work. His great-grandfather worked as a governor and member of the state legislature, his grandfather served as vice president of a national bank, and his father was a prominent lawyer. His mother also held a management position at the University of Washington, and was a prominent member of the boards of local organizations and banks. For this reason, it was not surprising that the child Bill showed intelligence, ambition and a spirit of competition at an early age. The great impact on Bell's life and future. It was at this school that Bell was introduced to the computer for the first time.
The birth of Microsoft
IN the middle of 1975 AD, and after the resounding success of Bill Gates and Paul Allen with the Mets Company, the two decided to establish a special partnership between them to develop software, and they called it the "Micro-Soft" company, and this name is formed from the two words "Microcomputer" and "Software". Where Bill Gates owned 60% of the company's size, while Paul Allen got the remaining 40%, Bill protested to get the largest share of his time in the company, while Paul was still a full-time employee of the Mets. The Basic translator program developed by Microsoft during this period was subjected to theft and illegal copying by computer hackers, which angered Bill Gates, and prompted him to write a letter to hackers in the Mets periodical, an "open letter to amateurs" condemning the theft and piracy, and stressing the programmer's right to obtain for the price of its production through the sale of software. This message resulted in hostile reactions among the piracy community. On the other hand, Bill received many letters that carried suggestions for solving the piracy problem, one of which included placing the program inside a "read-only memory" chip, and thus the lines of the program would be engraved inside a silicon chip instead of entering the computer through a paper tape, making Theft is almost impossible, and this was the perfect solution in the eyes of Bill and Alan, and they decided to implement it the next time. Indeed, Microsoft has developed a translator program for Commodore International, and the program was included for the first time inside the Personal Electronic Transactor-Commodore PET computer ROM chip.
By the end of 1976, Microsoft was officially registered as an independent company, and its profits amounted to approximately 104,216 US dollars. Paul Allen resigned from the Mets to work full-time at Microsoft, and Microsoft continued to develop software for the systems.
